    Wouldn’t flying south be faster than walking?

  4. Love this— a respite of snowy silent peace— aside from a few quack quacks ☺️

    I had completely forgotten that winter is here. It’s easy not to think about it when the weather is so nice that I had the backdoor open this afternoon.

    What a beautiful picture.
    Yes, it’s officially winter now. With a rose out in my garden a,ong with osteospermum and alstroemerias. This is not some southern country, but the UK.
    BTW. Since I was little, winter began on 21st December (all seasons changing on the equinox or solstice.) recently, however, the meteorological office have invented something called the ‘meteorological start’ to the seasons, which is the 1st of the month where it usually changes. What’s that all about? Why do they need a different date? The new dates don’t refer to any natural phenomenon, astronomical or otherwise. Totally mad. Now we have 2 dates for the start of the season.

      Bureaucratic Efficiency, perhaps??? 😉

      Looked up your flowers. They are gorgeous! A rose in the UK at the end of December?!

      Happy Holidays! Hope you and yours are all doing okay over there.

        We’re all keeping well, and away from others as much as possible. Sadly, due to the new restrictions, it means Christmas with our daughter and family is put on hold. Summer, perhaps? We can pretend it’s December in Australia!
        We are able to see our son, though, as he’s in the same tier as us.
        Have a Merry Christmas, and stay safe.

  7. Apparently, adult ducks don’t walk in a straight line like the babies following Mom. 😀 — Suzanne

  8. I just love this photo. I can hear them breaking the loud silence with their quacks.
    Is this your photo? May I use it sometime this winter if I link you? Thanks for the smiles. As always. 😀

    • I don’t know who took the picture — it’s just something I saw somewhere or other and appropriated for my own purposes. (That’s roughly how most of the photographs I use ended up in my files.) So feel free to use it, but you don’t need to link me. 🙂
